I created this portrait of the eyes of a young Yezidi boy when I decided, in the fall of 2015, to do something to help the Yezidi people who were being massacred, enslaved and tortured by the ISIS terrorist, without much people being aware of the nightmare their were going through.

I went to work. I thought mosaics of the eyes of the refugees would be the best way to get the world’s attention. After all, everyone remembers the eyes of the young Afghan girl who made the cover of National Geographic in the 80’s.


The eyes are the mirror of the Soul…

I wanted to capture the soul of these people, to share them with the world so people would become aware that the kind of things which happened 70 years ago in Germany can still happen today – in any country –  if we do not pay attention.

I built 8 mosaics, the eyes of 6 Yezidi people. 5 children, 1 young female soldier.

This one is the second mosaic I built, a portrait of a young boy who must be 3 or 4 years old. It is a bigger and black and white version of my Yezidi Young Boy piece realized in sepia tones.


Because I wanted these mosaics to be really special, I came up with a new technique, I called it “Opus Pixellatum”.

I had been thinking about it for a while, but decided to give it a try.

To my knowledge, nobody makes mosaics in this way, and the result is stunning.

I will donate 50 % of the profit of the sale of these mosaics to the Free Yezidi Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping the Yezidi People.
